#SurfacePhone #Mobiles – Microsoft Surface Phone release date, specs and design update: Leaked images show what Surface Phone could look like : Even though Microsoft continues to remain silent about the long-rumored Surface Phone, now we have an idea of what the Redmond-based company’s PC-in-your-pocket might look like.
Notable leakster Evan Blass shared a new set of potential Surface Phone renders, which show a super-sleek Windows phone that could offer the functionality of a full PC. Blass tweeted the images with the caption, “powered by a laptop-class Intel processor, would this have blown your mind?”
For all those waiting for some update on Microsoft Surface Phone release date, specs and design, the leaked images reveal a device that appears to be slimmer and sleeker than Microsoft’s own Lumia handsets, with a nearly edge-to-edge display and an attractive charcoal finish.
The much-anticipated Microsoft Surface Phone is widely expected to be released some time in 2017, according to recent reports. While some may dismiss these photos as a fan concept, Blass followed up by stating these phones are “much more than a concept” and that we should “stay tuned.”
He also posted some lifestyle shots of folks using the purported phone out in the wild, including one of a woman who appears to be using the device in conjunction with her Windows laptop.
Earlier this year, a report suggested that Microsoft was getting ready to kill the Lumia line to make way for the Surface Phone, but the company has remained tight-lipped on its mobile plans ? even after October’s big Windows 10 event that saw the reveal of the Surface Studio.
Thurrott’s Brad Sams claims that these Surface Phone renders are of a Dell-made device that never saw the light of day. But Blass’ tweeting leads us to believe we’ll soon learn more about what Microsoft has (or at least had) up its sleeve for mobile.
